Oakland Raiders Preparing To Battle the Seattle Seahawks – We Won!

If you only look at the win-loss record for 2009, you may think that the Oakland Raiders may be equally matched in ability when compared to the Seattle Seahawks.

Both teams had a 5-11 win-loss record in 2009. Many of us know that those numbers mean very little since there are personnel changes in both teams.

Focusing on the Oakland Raiders and the fact that they have a pretty good depth chart for quarterbacks, the Raiders will be ready to go on Sept. 2.

Jason Campbell's injury is a little setback but most believe he will be in good shape for the Sept. 2 game with the Seahawks.
